Interpretive Summary

Improving Phosphorus Management in Irrigated Potato Production Systems, 2006 Rapid expansion of the processing potato industry in Manitoba has generated a need for information regarding fertilizer management strategies for irrigated potato. The final year of a 4-year study was conducted in 2006 to determine the impact of P fertilizer rate on potato tuber yield and quality, and the effectiveness of petiole P concentration in assessing P status of potato (cv. Russet Burbank).

Improving Phosphorus Management on Irrigated Potato, 2005 Rapid expansion of the processing potato industry in Manitoba has generated a need for information regarding fertilizer management strategies for irrigated potato. The third year of a 3-year study was conducted in 2005 to determine the impact of phosphorus (P) fertilizer rate on potato tuber yield and quality, and the effectiveness of petiole P concentration in assessing P status of potato (cv. Russet Burbank).

Improving Phosphorus Management in Irrigated Potato Production Systems, 2004. Rapid expansion of the processing potato industry in Manitoba has generated a need for information regarding fertilizer management strategies for irrigated potato. The second year of a 3-year study was conducted in 2004 to determine the impact of phosphorus (P) fertilizer rate on potato tuber yield and quality, and the effectiveness of petiole P concentration in assessing P status of potato (cv. Russet Burbank).

Improving Phosphorus Management in Irrigated Potato Production Systems, 2003. Rapid expansion of the processing potato industry in Manitoba has generated a need for information regarding fertilizer management strategies for irrigated potato. The first year of a 3-year study was conducted in 2003 to determine the impact of phosphorus (P) fertilizer rate on potato tuber yield and quality, and the effectiveness of petiole P concentration in assessing P status of potato (cv. Russet Burbank).
